Default Re: can someone please enlighten me

As fast as you are willing to build it to go....... safely.
There are daily riders here that can go 50+.
There is a twin that is in process of being created that has been guestimated to go 70+.
With the right gearing or a CVT drive it could go 100+.
The thing here is it will never go that fast because it was not designed nor is it being built to go that fast.
With all due respect to you, if you want high speed, and the ability to avoid hospitals after the ride, get a motorcycle.
Converting a typical bicycle to go any faster than 40 or so can result in alot of unplanned pain unless you know what to modify and how to do it safely.
